This special event features a one-mile paved path amid immersive lighting effects that highlight the beauty of trees in winter. Visitors can enjoy seasonal music, marvel at ever-changing, interactive lighting designs, and warm up by a crackling fire with a cozy drink or roast marshmallows for s’mores. This year debuts a new route with a more spacious pathway as well as new experiences such as Tree Fascination, which mixes art and science. Closed on: November 25, 28 (Thanksgiving Day); December 2, 9, 16, 24 (Christmas Eve), and 25 (Christmas Day).
